Popcorn

There once was a bowl of fluffy salty popcorn…

It became perilously perched.

Popcorn and consumer restored to more stable positioning.

On a more serious note, I have felt convicted recently of my poor attitude toward housework, overturned popcorn bowls withstanding.  There is a place to feel defeated and there is a time to admit that it’s too much for one person.  But I have recently been such a Whiney Wendy about the whole thing.  I have failed to see the blessing that may come from housework.  God has given me this work to do, and being an able-bodied person with a husband that loves me, I really should not complain.  I really should be humbled by this work and consider it a joy to do it for my family, and in extension for the Lord.

“Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do,
as though you were working for the Lord
rather than for people.”

~Colossians 3:23

  • Precious! Love the little dress and pigtails. Charity LOVES popcorn as well. I don’t usually buy it, but should get it for her from time to time. The only way my Dad could get her to sit on his lap for longer than 5 seconds when we were in VA, was to share his popcorn with her. Ha ha..
